Something like this would be nice...with price in 2 digits.

The new type of strap lug used with EOS M...is it possible to buy just the lug from somewhere to make a homemade wrist band? I don't want to butcher :o the included strap just to obtain the lug.

Is it really "butchering" if it only takes a minute or so to undo the strap to use the end fitting and then another minute or so to put it back together later?

I don't have the EOS M arrived in mail yet, so I just assumed I may need to "butcher".


Is there any good LCD protector for EOS M ?


I use Zagg Invisible shield on all my electronics. They can be 15-20$ depending on what they are for. For EOS M, I ordered a screen protector made for an older model Samsung smartphone, with 4 inch screen. I will just trim it to fit to EOS M screen. Why am I doing that? Because it's now just $2.

Note - the manual states that a screen protector is not recommended as it may impair touchscreen sensitivity. Also the screen doesn't show finger prints and grime as much as other touchscreens like the iphone.

Mine came today.  I think I'll be carrying this one around my neck.  It's so tiny compared to my mk3!

It's very easy.

The proprietary lug that Canon give is OK. You can remove the original strap from the lug very easily..took me about 10 secs to remove each end…
I then bought a Paul Frank camera neck strap and i attached that to the lug..all in all..took me under 5mins to get it done.

Got the M in mail today and yes it was easy to take apart the lug.

The camera is heavier than I expected. But not heavier than other mirrorless cameras I used. The dimensions are deceiving. I'm thinking about getting some sort of shoulder strap/sling strap(bit overkill) along with a hefty wrist strap.

I did some reading, and the small Peak Design plate doesn't allow you to open the battery door unless you cut off the loop on that side.

My camera came in, and I think I definitely want a hand strap.

I will be keeping my EOS-M stored in an old Targus case that held my old now broken P&S. It holds the M well and has enough room for a spare battery and the charger.   This will be thrown in my work backpack and taken everywhere that goes. My Nex does not fit in this bag and had been just thrown in the top pocket of my backpack with all my pens, mic, earplug and stuff.  I was always worried that the Nex would get messed up somehow. 

Aside from that bag I am thinking of getting some kind of wrist strap.  That can be used with the EOS-M or my Nex6. 

I wish the charger was smaller and that the M could charge from the USB cable for traveling light. I do like the 22mm lens and still thing this was a better solution buying the 20mm Sony lens.  I cannot wait to get ML running on the EOS-M.

The LowePro UtilityBag 100 AW works great! I had an unused one sitting around and gave it a try.

  • Front pocket for filters, batteries and cards
  • Built in microfiber cloth for cleaning the LCD
  • Two inside pockets; one for 1-2 extra lenses
  • The other for the GPS receiver or flash at the bottom
  • The camera sits on top with lens pointing down into the 2nd pocket (works for either pancake or zoom)
  • AW cover
  • Add a strap to the back grommets
  • I'll keep the lens adaptor in with my other gear

Seems to work pretty well, I want something that'll hold 2 lenses plus one on the body (all I'm missing is the new wide angle), the GPS or maybe I'll get a flash too, and filters, batteries and cards.

Otherwise I might consider the Lowepro LP36336 Compact Courier 80

I bought Think Tank Mirrorless mover 30i, should be here this weekend. I'm planning on using it as my daily commuter, so I can carry camera with 22mm + 18-55 on side. It might be bit big for it but then I can throw in bunch of other things if I need to without worrying about space and at the same time it would be small enough for daily office commute.

Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that. Those looked good. Now I wish I hadn't noticed those while looking around for cases.

I ended up getting a wrist strap used for the wii remote controller. It should be adequate to prevent accidental drop or even some swings.

Funny, but when using my DSLR, it is on my shoulder exposed to the world, as it were.  But, when transporting it, it is in one of my many bags/packs.  I have a beach vacation coming up.  Decided I did need something so I just ordered:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/171062594573?var=470263068598&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

I am planning on keeping the EF to M adapter on the 40 or on the 28-105 and carrying that in a separate pouch for now.  We'll see how this goes as I use it.

I still think I'll wind up with a leather case of some sort, but don't like the one's I've been seeing.

Don't worry about it cb33 ;), it only $10. I can still return it. I just want to mention here so others don't run into this problem again.
